NASHVILLE – Jeffery Simmons proved worth the wait – and he's just getting started.

"I told him when he first went out to just have fun – don't think about it, let go and have fun with it," Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey said of Simmons, who just added to the 53-man roster on Saturday. “I told him to let it go, and he did his thing today. He had one hell of a game. "
Simmons was part of a Titans defense that saved the day at the end.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound was on the pitch for the big game ̵
Simmons did his job.
"Defending every inch of grass," Sa Simmons. "I got off the ball, and my job was to hit my husband and I feel I did. When I saw Jurrell with it, everyone went and said "Fumble! Fumble "
